[quote="flight cat"]:) hi there...here is what i grab in a book...hope its help for the coming interview..good luck.. :cool:


Preparing For An Interview
Here are a few common sense tips for candidates who have been invited to an interview for the role of cabin crew:


1) Get as much rest as possible on the night before the interview, so that you look your best and feel fresh and alert.


2) Dress smartly, and pay attention to your personal grooming - especially hair, fingernails, skin. Ensure shoes are clean, and any accessories match your outfit. Do not over-dress, or try to dress in too ‘showy’ a manner.


3) Remember to take your interview invitation, and any documentation that has been requested (passport, exam certificate, language certificate, etc.).


4) Check that you know the correct interview location, and arrive in good time (allow extra travelling time in case of delays).


5) Be prepared to be at the interview location for some time. Air cabin crew interviews may last a morning, an afternoon, or even all day. Get something to eat before you go (it can be embarrassing and distracting if your stomache is rumbling during an interview!).


6) Try to relax, and be helpful and supportive to any other candidates you meet.


7) Remember that there is a good reason behind each element in the selection process - the airline is trying to find the right people for their organisation. Be positive about the exercises and tests you are asked to undertake. Be prepared for surprises.


8) Have in mind some answers (and examples) for the different types of questions you are likely to face. However, avoid having a ‘script’, or you replies will lack spontaneity. Knowing what the role really involves will give you an insight into why certain questions are being asked, and will help you to formulate better or more appropriate replies.




9) If you know that you are likely to face a conventional style of interview, it is a really good idea to have a friend or family member do a trial interview beforehand. Even when you know how you would like to answer certain questions, it is not always easy to do it in practice (especially if you have not experienced an interview situation for some time). When questions are coming in quick succession (especially questions like “How did that make you feel?”

I hope people applying for this airine take the trouble to check up on the society in which they will be living. Remember it is an a Arab country where women will not have the freedom they have in Singapore.


I suggest reading up on; society and conduct, dangers and annoyances, law, women. There is usually a section on these things in the 'Lonely Planet Guide' which you can use as a start.

As the group going for the swim test is rather big (36 pax), there isn't really time for body checks. Basically, the interviewers asked the candidates to walk from one end to the other end. And they proceeded to the jump. However, for my batch, we went for the jump 1st and then do the "walking". There wasn't really a body check. But when we walked towards them (one by one), they will look at our face and also asked us to turn around so that they can see our backview.

Hope this information is useful to everyone who are going for interviews next time. :D


That was the check I was referring to? Nevertheless guys were axed if they are too beefy or fat during this check!

M :cool:


do they see the checks with vests on or what?

Hey there,
IS Qatar a close competitor of SQ? Did a quick check on Skytrax and apparently so. However, i was surprised that Emirates as a prestigious airline was not ranked amongst the 5-star airlines. And to my Horror of Horrors, Malaysia Airlines is actually a top-notch player in this arena..unbelievable.

And Qatar, i've nv heard or seen it. Except in English PRemier Leagues where you see lots of advertisements lying on the periphery of the field :wink: and Qatar is one of them.

So Plavt, just wanna double check with ya... if Qatar Airs is indeed one prestigious airline..Don't really wanna join some XXX airline that conducts retrenchment exercises now and then.

best regards,
MK4


Yes Menaquinone, Qatar is a prestigious airline and it really will not be any easier to join than Singapore Airlines. Unless I am very much mistaken the airline caters mainly to business class passengers who are far more demanding as frequent fliers and whose companies pay a much higher premium. That gives some idea of the caliber of person they are looking for and may well be an even higher standard than Singapore Airlines when you think of the region in which the airline is based.

As regards retrenchments (we call them redundancies in this part of the world) that is just a chance you take. All international airlines are dependant on the world economy and should there be another oil crisis, SARS (let's hope not), bird flu epidemic it really will cause an awful lot of people a lot of problems.

Do remember the Middle East is what many of us here would call a 'trouble spot' which is why it is advisable to read the newspapers and what goes on in that region.

Please remember this airline like any other major player will not be short of applicants which means they can pick and choose apart from likely having high standards as I implied above.

Best to sit down and have a good think or read about the culture, religion, society in which you might live, as us English say: 'look before you leap'.


Plavt.

Ps: See if you can find the 'Lonely Planet' travel guide on the Arabian Peninsula that's a start to finding out about life in the region but don't just stop at that.
